1  CANADA / Atlantic Canada / Re: Anyone in Saint John? on: October 12, 2007 08:36:43 PM
I started knitting about two years ago, but I only very recently stopped totally sucking at it. I just finished my first sock! (Unfortunately, it's still only one sock and I have two feet.) I started cross stitching this year, and I'd like to do a whole lot of other things if I could find the time. Occasionally I make really simple beaded bracelets.
2  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / CANADA / Re: CRAFT in Canada! on: September 17, 2007 02:29:23 PM
I'm thrilled that my local Michaels (in Saint John) got the fourth issue in. There's a magazine store in town that carries it, but I hadn't bought the three previous issues because of how expensive it was... with a 40% coupon at Michaels, it's not too expensive anymore.  Smiley

I'm in Saint John.

Oh, and I know SparroWinter, who's also still in SJ, although she doesn't seem to have posted on Craftster in a very long time.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Question about knitted kitty on: May 19, 2007 09:09:21 PM
I may be the only person dumb enough to be confused by something as simple as geobabe's knitted kitty pattern, but I've got a question about the instructions for the tail:

Quote
Cast on 16 sts. K 1st row. In the 2nd row, K 10 sts and turn (leaving 6 sts "unknitted"). 3rd row K (this row is shorter now). Repeat these 3 rows 3 times.

Does this mean the tail should be 12 rows? Those three rows, and then the three rows repeated three times? Or is it 9 rows, with the first three counting as the first "repeat?"

Also, to other people who've knit this, was anyone else's tail kind of funny-looking? Their knitted kitty's tail, I mean. Because mine is coming out sort of funny-looking, and I think it's just because my tension isn't even enough (it's fine on the body and the head), but I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything else I could be doing wrong on the tail.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / What setting on iron for emroidered iron-on letters? on: April 20, 2007 11:14:08 AM
I haven't been able to find information about what setting to use on the iron for embroidered iron-on transfers, just for the regular iron-on transfers that are washable. Does it make a difference that these are embroidered?

The instructions are: "With your heated iron apply pressure for 10-15 seconds to the cloth-covered applique tacking it into position. Turn the garment inside-out and with your heated iron apply pressure for 20-25 seconds to the back of where your applique has been tacked."

The T-shirt I am putting the letters on is 50% cotton and 50% polyester. What setting should I use?
7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Finished "To Dye For" on: November 12, 2006 11:41:37 AM
It's very pretty. Thanks for posting this -- I've been wondering what Suri Dream Hand Dyed looks like when it's knit up, since I was considering someday using it for this sweater. Now I know it looks good!

That's amazing. I love it. I wish that laptop cover lived in my house... maybe someday in the VERY FAR-OFF future I can make something like that... and maybe by then I'll have a laptop, too.

Crafster sighting in teen novel Rx by Tracy Lynn:

Quote
On Vitamin R, I could study till the cows came home, forcing the s*** down until my mind had no choice but to regurgitate it perfectly (instead of getting frustrated, crying, breaking my pencil, eating a pint of ice cream, and then going online to see if there were any new bead projects posted on craftster.org). 43-44
